CDA members suggest passing constitution draft without conducting public polls
Constitution Drafting Assembly’s members have proposed to pass the current constitution draft without conduction public polls to see the reaction of the Libyan people, reported Press Solidarity from what it described as well-confirmed source from the CDA.
The CDA members think that they have gained the trust of the Libyans as the CDA was elected directly from the people, so they said “no need for the polls” and the draft they agreed on in the CDA meetings could become the permanent constitution of Libya without leading polls at all, only if approved by the Tobruk-based HoR, the source told Press Solidarity, adding that such a procedure is done all around the world.
Earlier last month, a group of the CDA members approved a new draft for the Libyan constitution amid the boycotting of western region’s members.
